powerful bronze and cast stone equine, figurative and mythological forms.
From early childhood, Andreason has felt a keen awareness of the interconnection
between nature and humanity. She feels her mission as an artist is to
show humans this connection. By portraying the sprit, the beauty, and
the power within the very soul of every piece she creates, her sculpting
becomes a circle connecting her and the viewer with the creative life
forces of all nature.

twenty years as a sculptor has been portraying equine figures. The frequently
depict ancient mythological horses. Her sculpting of Bucephalus, the
mighty war horse of Alexander the Great, is in the collection of the
American Academy of Equine Art in Lexington, Kentucky.

bas-relief panels and walls with both equine and human forms. She uses

with the late Tony Peril who taught her the basics of sculpting and
was her greatest mentor. Her knowledge of equine anatomy she learned
from her mother who was an avid rider as well as an artist. She receives
inspiration from the work of Moore, Zuniga, Marini, Picasso and Manzu.
